Example about daily routine in Portuguese

Let’s see a small text that describes the daily routine of a carioca. Let’s read the text below:

Todo os dias eu acordo às 7 da manhã, levanto, tomo banho, me arrumo, tomo café da manhã e saio de casa para trabalhar. Sempre vou para o trabalho de ônibus. A viagem leva 30 minutos mais ou menos. Ao meio-dia, eu almoço e converso um pouco com os meus colegas. Geralmente vamos a um restaurante perto do trabalho. Eu trabalho até as 5 da tarde. Eu sempre pego um ônibus lotado para voltar pra casa. Quando chego em casa, janto e depois pratico esportes na academia. A academia fica muito perto da minha casa então eu vou e volto a pé. Depois da academia como um sanduíche natural e bebo um açaí com banana. Geralmente, durmo às 10 horas da noite.

Translation of the text

Everyday I wake up at 7 in the morningget up, take a shower, get dressed, have breakfast and leave my house to go to work. I always go to work by bus. Commuting takes roughly 30 minutes. At noon I have lunch and talk to my colleagues a little bit. We usually go to a restaurant close to work. I work until 5 in the afternoon. I always catch a packed bus on my way home. When I arrive home, I have dinner and after that I practice sports at the gym. The gym is very close to my house, so I go and come back on foot. After the gym I eat a sandwich and drink an açaí with banana. Usually, I go to sleep at 10 o’clock at night

What about you? How is your daily routine?
